COVID-19 and HIV: Previous Webinars by the MAAETC and our Partners

The MidAtlantic AIDS Education and Training Center (MAAETC) has received funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act to create and share content relevant to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
This webinar series aims to help healthcare professionals navigate through COVID-19 by gathering speakers from various backgrounds to share their knowledge and experiences. The goal of this series is to cover Clinical Issues on COVID-19 and HIV, the Psychosocial Impact COVID-19 has had, Environmental and Infection Prevention measures taken in light of COVID-19, Workflow and Operational changes due to COVID-19, Workforce Support and Development, and Access to care.
The series will cover an array of topics; from broad topics to the parallels of the pandemic to the HIV epidemic, to more defined topics like Stress and the Care Worker.
Please find the scheduled webinars below and follow the links for more information on a session. If there is a topic you would like to see covered, or have any other questions, please email us at maaetc@pitt.edu
